Biography

Luisella Traversi Guerra, born on 21st July 1944 in Piacenza, is a painter and a writer. After spending her childhood in Paris, she returned to Italy to study at university. For years she worked for the family business, contributing to its growth – here she specialised in behaviour analysis and techniques for improvement of the quality of the work place. She would often paint in her free time; she soon noticed, however, that her growth as an individual and the evolution of her artistic productions correlated strongly: painting inevitably became her way of expressing her journey of inner exploration. Her works, painted using the Flemish multilayer technique, often include symbolic representations. She first began exhibiting abroad – her works were on display in the United States, Japan, Holland, and Switzerland for many years before appearing at expositions in Italy.


Painting works

Luisella Traversi Guerra combines different structures, techniques, and materials in her search for a new form of emotion. Her paintbrush prances around on the canvas, picking up density, refinement, and determination. Her artworks are songs of shapes and colours that arise out of a mere need to exist; they are intrinsically linked to the magic of perception. Luisella Traversi Guerra’s creations are not just paintings – they are elegant moods.
